Please note that Friends of Families programs follow all State and Town guidance for safety during COVID-19.
Caregivers and kids from any town are welcome to attend our playgroups. Playgroups are all free, thanks to grant funding and generous community donations. We follow the school calendar and closings (i.e., no playgroups on snow days, school holidays or summer vacation).

Children's Clothing and Book Swaps
Twice a year, in spring and fall, books and clothing are donated and recycled by families from the community. No money is exchanged, and all are welcome to select books and clothing as needed for their children.
Donate as many gently used items as you want on drop-off day; we accept clothing sized infant to 14 and children's books up to middle school level. No toys, please, and items will not be accepted on swap day. Volunteers will sort clothing by size and gender. We don't assign dollar values or tally up what you drop off. Participants in the swap can pick whatever they need for their families on the day of the swap. If you just need clothing for your family and do not have anything to donate, you are welcome to just "shop."
Friends of Families hosts a Welcome Baby Brunch each May at Town Hall. Families with children born during the year enjoy a yummy brunch and are honored with a book dedication to each baby. Books are kept at the Carpenter Carse Library for all to read and enjoy.
